Am I a Good Candidate For Breast Reduction?

Breast Reduction Eisemann Plastic Surgery

If you have disproportionately large breasts that cause you neck or back pain, or other physical symptoms, you may want to consider breast reduction surgery. The procedure can bring great psychological effects for women and for men who have conditions such as gynecomastia. Overly large breasts can, in addition to physical pain, create problems such as:

  • Detraction from the natural contours of your body
  • Feeling and looking heavier than you actually are
  • Interference in clothing options
  • Limiting of physical abilities
  • Low self esteem

After a pre-operative consultation that will include a detailed medical history to determine if you’re healthy enough for the surgery, Dr. Michael Eisemann will remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin, followed by a reconstruction to produce a look and feel that is more complimentary to your frame. Post-operative care may include wearing a special bra until healing is complete. If you are a physically active person, you will need to wait at least a month before resuming your activities.

Male Breast ReductionIf you are a man with gynecomastia, Dr. Eisemann can reduce your chest, as well. If your breasts are the result of fat alone, a male liposuction procedure may be all that is needed. If they are the result of glandular tissue, then surgical removal will be necessary to restore your chest. All options will be covered in your consultation.

Because of the physical pain involved in having large breasts, breast reduction surgery may be covered by your insurance. Be sure to follow all procedures and directions from your insurance company.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
